Kardo Locksmith had a house rekey project in Los Angeles, CA. The homeowner called for a house rekey as they needed new locks since they remodeled their house. We responded to their request for a locksmith Los Angeles quickly as the homeowner was looking for a residential locksmith. We were able to completely rekey the house and also provided them with more secure locks throughout their updated home.
Working on a massive home renovation project is exciting, especially if you're a first-time homeowner. However, you should not forget to take important precautions after completing the work. If you rely on contractors and professionals to come over while you are at work, they will need a set of keys. So the safest option is to have your locks rekeyed after their final visit to your house.
What is rekeying?
Rekeying a lock means replacing the functioning key of the lock with another key without replacing the actual lock. Basically, you can keep the same lock, but the old key will no longer work. On the other hand, the lock will be removed, and some of its parts will be replaced. These parts are called key pins or tumblers that fit a specific key. So if you change or reset the pins, the old key won't work anymore, and basically, the new key will be set to work with the current lock. This requires knowledge and skill, so you should definitely seek help from a professional residential locksmith to solve your problem. You can attempt to rekey a lock yourself, but if that fails, you could wind up destroying it completely. That's the reason why it's easier for you to hire a residential locksmith to rekey your locks.
When should you rekey?
Lost key - You have lost your keys or a duplicate of it, and you're worried that someone might find them and try to break into your house. You can rekey your locks so that the lost key won't work anymore.
New home - Rekeying your locks when moving to a new place can be an inexpensive way to guarantee that no one else has the same keys to your new home.
Remodeling - Electricians, roofers, painters, plumbers, contractors, and other professionals may all have a set of your keys because they may have to enter your home at different times. This is important during project operations, especially if you are not at home all the time. But when the renovation is complete, it is easier for mistakes to happen with your house keys getting misplaced. This can result in strangers having keys that allow them to enter your home.
Master key - If you have numerous keys on different locks and you just want them all to fit one single key, you can rekey your lock to work with the same key. They just have to be from the same brand or have the same keyhole.
